This fixes the issue with newlines being \r\n and not being displayed
correctly when using gpg2 for Windows, as reported at
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/1249

Issues with non-ASCII characters remain for further investigation.

Thanks for the re-roll...

It's still not clear from this description what "not being displayed
correctly" means. Ideally, the commit message should stand on its own,
explaining exactly what problem the patch is solving, without the
reader having to chase URLs to pages (which might disappear). If you
could summarize the problem and solution in your own words in such a
way that your description itself conveys enough information for
someone not familiar with that problem report to understand the
problem, then that would likely make a good commit message.

It's not at all clear what 'bottom' means. In the original, when the
code was inline, the surrounding context would likely have given a
good clue to the meaning of 'bottom', but here stand-alone, it conveys
little or nothing. Perhaps a better name for this argument would be
'start_at' or 'from' or something.

Hmm, was this tested? If I'm reading this correctly, this strips out
the entire CRLF pair, whereas the original code only stripped the CR
and left what followed it (typically LF) alone. Junio's suggestion was
to enhance this to be more careful and strip CR only when followed
immediately by LF (but to leave the LF intact). Therefore, this seems
like a regression.

It is not wrong to say "Strip CR from the CRLF".
In Git we often talk about "convert CRLF into LF",

The comment somewhat different to the function name.
The function namd and the name of the parameters can be more in
in line with existing strbuf functions:
(And the opening '{' should go into it's own line:

static void convert_crlf_to_lf(struct strbuf *sb, size_t len)
{
	size_t i, j;

An even more generic approach (could be done in a seperate commit)
would be to move the whole function into strbuf.c/strbuf.h,
and it may be called like this.

void strbuf_crlf_to_lf(struct strbuf *sb, size_t len)
{
  /* I would even avoid "i" and "j", and use src and dst or so) */
  size_t src_pos, dst_idx;
}

Thanks for working on this.

Thanks.  I was wondering if I am the only one who does not
understand what the revised wording wants to say.

I personally do not mind 'bottom' (especially when it appears in
contrast to 'top') too much, but start_at would be much clearer.

I think the "negate the entire thing" condition confuses the
readers.  The negated condition is "Do we still have enough bytes to
see if we are looking at CRLF?  Are we at CR?  Is the one byte
beyond what we have a LF?  Do all of these three conditions hold
true?"  If not, i.e. for all the bytes on the line except for that
narrow "we are at CR of a CRLF sequence" case, the body of the loop
makes a literal copy and advances the destination pointer 'j'.  The
only thing that is skipped is CR that comes at the beginning of a
CRLF sequence.

So I think the loop does what it wants to do.

In any case, I think this should be a two patch series---one with
the code as-is with a better explanation, but without "make sure
only CR in CRLF and no other CR are stripped" improvement, and the
other as a follow-up to it to make the improvement.

Thanks.

You're right. I misunderstood it. Rephrasing the logic in a simpler
fashion would help.

Agreed, a 2-patch series makes sense.
